Manfeild sharpens tech edge

EXTRA polish has been added to Manfeild’s online and phone app technology.

Just-enacted enhancements to the venue’s website (www.Manfeild.co.nz) and its smartphone app active for Apple and Android platforms that, when launched in time for the 2017 New Zealand Grand Prix in February was believed to be a New Zealand first and potentially international standard-setter, have left both delivering a whole new user experience.

“We’re really excited by the revisions and we know users will be too,” says Manfeild marketing manager Sarah Hughes.

“Our social media development is a core part of our ongoing commitment to enhance our communication.”

The updated Manfeild website shows people what is coming up over the next few weeks and months in an easy to navigate way.

“Our new app has similarly evolved. Having initially provided focus on the NZGP, it has been re-engineered to provide a complete insight into the upcoming events at the venue.

“So, again, when you download the Manfeild app to your smartphone, you’ll find upcoming events and the latest news. You can choose from one of our categories: Agriculture, Equestrian, Motorsport or Other. This allows you to see the particular category you’re interested in, or you can see all the events at the venue. You’re choice!”

Ms Hughes says the provisions are all about enhancing interaction with Manfeild.

“We hope that more people will plan to attend an event, because they can find the right information more easily. Also, it’s perfect for those in the market for a venue, there is information about the venue and Manfeild facilities that are for hire.”

Motorsport remains a core activity for the Feilding operation and, in light of this, there are new provisions for users of Manfeild: Circuit Chris Amon, notably a new online garage booking form.

“This allows someone to pencil book a garage for a race meeting. A Manfeild staff member will follow-up with the hirer by phone or email to confirm the booking.”

There’s more, with a What’s On section that can be categorised, or “you can view all upcoming events, depending on your interests.”

The new interaction is all about enhancing the Manfeild brand which is also strongly promoted through traditional media and through the Feilding Information Centre and the Palmerston North iSite, as well as the Manfeild reception desk.

“Websites and smartphones have become a necessity of modern life and we have gone all out to tailor these services to a premium level.

“We live in a world of fast-changing and incredible advancement and these developments take Manfeild right to the forefront.”
